Measured Service

Cloud systems automatically control and optimize resource use with a metering capability at some level of distance from the user.

Resource usage can be monitored, controlled, and reported, providing transparency for both the provider and consumer.

Rapid Elasticity

Capabilities can be elastically provided and released, in some cases automatically, to meet demand.

To the consumer, the capabilities often appear unlimited and can be appropriated in any quantity at any time.

Resource Pooling

The provider’s computing resources are pooled to serve multiple consumers in a multi-tenant model, with different physical and virtual resources constantly assigned and reassigned according to demand.

The user might not know or decide the exact location of the provided resources.

On-Demand Self Service

A consumer can access computing capabilities, like server time and network storage, as needed, without needing human interaction for each request.

Broad Network Access

Capabilities are available over the network and accessed by various client platforms (e.g., mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and workstations).

A cloud may be publicly available and hosted by an organization like a school or business and be specific to a place; or it may be a private cloud hosted by and used for one or more organizations and accessible from multiple sites.

Microsoft products like Exchange are powerful tools for your business, with everything from email to calendars and chat.

But buying the programs, configuring the software, and maintaining the hardware can be too much time and expense for a small business.
